October 2015

In October we held a few evening classes combining the skills of our Therapists, Make up team, Sainsbury’s Clothing Department and Jo Moir from Style by Jo to enable our guests and their families to work with the professionals to gain an understanding on how to work with the changes that were taking place with their bodies before and after treatment. Due to the events being small and just for our guests and their support network they felt safe talking about their concerns and how it had changed the way they felt about themselves.

The Hummingbird Centre actively work and encourage our guests to overcome their  fears the affects cancer can have on their confidence and how they feel about themselves.  We make the evenings fun, yet never under estimate how hard it is for anyone to talk and share how they may feel about themselves.  Appearance is just as important for the men as it is the ladies and their confidence does become affected.

One gentleman who took part commented “I don’t feel awkward here with the ladies because they understand and accept me for who I am,  that’s what makes The Hummingbird Centre events like these so special”

We would like to thank all who took part and look forward to continuing in 2016.
